Gifts of Stocks or Securities

Learn More

Learn More

Gifts of appreciated securities – including publicly traded and privately held stock and mutual funds – offer a two-fold tax savings because the donor is entitled to take a charitable deduction for the full current value of appreciated securities (held longer than one year), and is able to avoid paying the capital gains tax that would be due if the donor sold the securities.

To initiate a transfer of securities held by a brokerage or commercial bank, notify the broker or bank that you intend to electronically transfer the securities to inewsource. This can often be done online or you can download a PDF form to give to your broker.

Legacy and Planned Giving

Planned giving offers the greatest opportunity for our donors to make their largest gift to inewsource. Often referred to as an “ultimate gift,” it can help donors accomplish more through their giving than they may have imagined was possible.

A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to inewsource.

If you have questions about planned gifts, please call Ashley Rodriguez, donor engagement manager, at 619-594-8197.
